September Christmas cards...

 I received a HUGE box of rubber stamps from Scott's mom over the summer and FINALLY made time to use one of them... it's only ONE of hundreds in that box!  Ou vey!  The stamp is made by Hero Arts called Kris Kringle dated 1996... wow!
 
 I started coloring this, off and on, at the beginning of the month.  It was all finished except for mounting on the card back on the very last day, almost the very last hour...
 
This morning, October 1st, I added the twine and heart brad and put glossy accents on the fur of his coat.  There sure was alot of work involved in coloring this so, it definitely won't be our personal card, but it was really fun to do...

    1. Wellllll, Scott's mom, who stamped YEARS ago, moved in with her boyfriend and I acquired maybe 500 of her old stamps that she had no room to take with her. PLUS, she hasn't stamped in years. In a quick overview, I pulled out maybe a hundred that I might use. The rest are sitting here. Every time a crafter comes to visit, I let them go thru the box and take what they might use... SO, COME VISIT!! You can go thru it too... LOL
